"Guesi House"

Unfortunately, English errors in other countries, such as the one shown above which is uploaded onto the Internet as a joke, are increasingly common in Hong Kong. The huge sign which says "Dinning" and the stick saying "Please singe and return to me" that I wrote about on 25 and 30 November last year were two examples.

The photo below, taken on a Hong Kong street by an Australian friend of mine, is another example. I wonder if the fact that the error is in the sign with simplified Chinese characters (the version used in the Mainland) but not the one with traditional Chinese characters (the version used in Hong Kong) can be used as an excuse.
